    Hi,

    Goto T.Code "VF03".

    Enter the invoice number.

    Goto Goto> Header>Output.

    Check the status for your output type in this screen.

    If it is green then come back to the VF03 screen.Enter the billing document number.

    Click on Billing document-->Issue output to.

    Press (CtrlShiftF1) or click on the icon beside "Print options".

    Here you can see the print preview.

    If the status is red then click on the processing log.Here you will get the error messages.

    If the status is in yellow colour,then click on the "Further Data" button

    Set "Dispatch time" as "4 Send immediately (when saving the application)"

    Regards,

    Krishna.

    Hi Abhishek,

    Before the print preview option you should make sure you have added correct output type to the relevant billing document. To do that, go to transaction VF02.

    Enter the billing document no

    Go to Menu option -> Go to -> Header -> Output

    In that screen you have to add relevant output type. (Standard output type is RD00)

    Add that & press enter key

    Highlight that line & press "Further Data" button

    Set "Dispatch time" as "4 Send immediately (when saving the application)"

    Press "Back" Button

    again select that line & go to "Communication method" button

    Set "Logical destination" as LOCAL"

    Don't mark "Print immediately" & "Release after output" ticks. If you mark them, sa soon as you save the billing document, you'll get a print out.

    Press "Back" Button

    Save

    Now form the initial "Change Billing Document" screen, Go to Menu option; Billing Document -> Issue Output to

    You can see that output type line appear.

    select that line & press "Print Preview" button or (CTRLSHIFTF1)

    You can see the print preview.

    Alternatively you can use VF31 to print multiple print outs at same time.

    If you want to get PDF outputs of billing documents, go to your printer settings in the your computer from Control Panel.

    Set PDF Writer as "Default Printer" (Right click & select "Set as Default Printer")

    Then normal way, print the billing from SAP.

    It'll automatically send to your PDF writer. You can save it to the path you want,

    Hope this helps you.

    Best regards,

    Anupa

    Hi Abhi,

    First confirm that output has been triggered successfully for your invoice. Check VF02>Goto>Header>Output, status should be GREEN. If so come to VF03/02 screen and billing document>issue output to-->print preview.

    If the status of your output type is not green there, then try to make it green then only you can view print preview.

    Hi,

    Simply go to T. Code - VF02 or VF03 and select "Billing Document" in the main menu and select "Issue", where you will be poped up with a screen that displays the Output Types. You can select the required Output type and then click on the Print Preview Button next to Print Options tab.

    FYI, you can view the Print Preview only for the Output Type with Transmission Medium as "Print Output".

    Hope this will help you out.

    Ravi.
